Home on the Range: Stove Hood Ideas for Your Kitchen Remodel

hood_hostetStove hoods have come a long way over the past several years, evolving from the purely functional to become integral design elements in a kitchen remodel. If you are remodeling your kitchen, you will want to balance the practical aspects of your stove hood with the visual feel of your new kitchen.

Why is a Range Hood Necessary?
Range hoods reduce cooking smells, heat and condensation through ventilation and protect your kitchen from Barbot_hoodgrease splattering and other food mess. How much you use your stove to cook will partly determine the type of hood and strength of ventilation you choose.

What are the Types of Hoods?
The type of hood you select will relate to the layout and design of your kitchen. If you have a cooktop on your island, for instance, you will need a ceiling mounted hood. Other available types are wall mount, under cabinet mount, chimney style and custom built-in.

How Can a Hood Enhance my Kitchen Remodel?
Hoods can be custom designed for your kitchen remodel to create an exciting visual statement while also performing essential function in the room. Most importantly, a professional design team ensures that the hood enhances your kitchen remodel rather than distracting from it. The hood should look as if it is a well-considered element of the kitchen design, whether your kitchen is ultra modern or French country.

Our professional designers continuously research the latest innovations in products that transform your home and your lifestyle. Choosing the right range hood is just one of the detailed creative decisions that makes working with design build remodeling experts an enjoyable and stress-free experience.
